      Maybe some of you will be able to draw the shape of these shields???
      I would gladly add them to the set of "De Ruyter"

        Here is an enlarged view of Java's Bofors mount face shield from Antens book. (DR's seem to be identical - on her wreck - although no historical photos appear to exist showing them.)

        As you can see it is rather an odd shape. Two curves so to speak. Looked at from side on it is almost like a poorly drawn number '3' (bottom left).

          You asked me to task!
          Indeed, shield very strange shape!!
          I'll try to draw them on a scale of 1/350
          Is not known what will be the result?

            Opps, I did mean to imply ".......showing them well".

                Here is a photo "Vickers" on the cruiser "Tromp" ... Probably the same guns stood on the "De Ruyter"???

                  That is the correct weapon mount by Solothurn and not Vickers.
